Default Waterloo Drop Monday 2/12 at Acoustic Music Works!

Hey hey!

It has been a LONG time since we've had any kind of representative sample of Waterloo guitars. We've always loved the concept and the guitars themselves, and were thrilled to play the prototypes on the couch with Bill (seems like forever ago)

Well, Monday 2/12/24 at 1pm EST we will be unleashing FOUR Waterloo guitars for your consideration! Three pre-owned and one brand new and never circulated.

It will be more fun if I don't reveal all of the specific models and details here, but be sure to hit our NEW ARRIVALS page at 1pm to see these guitars. Here are a few teaser pics, and you Waterloo detectives will probably figure out some of the details.

Can you tell us what the story is with Waterloo production right now? One dealer said they cannot order them.

Bowie, that is true. They have been closed to new orders since 2020. During the pandemic they had to redirect most of their resources to full line acoustic and electric guitars, and the two head builders in the Waterloo department moved to Vermont to work for Iris.

We've had about 30 Waterloos on order since before the pandemic, and they are delivering just a couple per year. We have no idea if or when production will come back to pre-pandemic levels, the profitability on these models just isn't there in their price range. We love them, though!

Thanks for the info. I now understand why the used value on these has skyrocketed in the past 3 years. So glad I didn't sell mine!
